2000 Lone Madrone York Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

2000 Lone Madrone York Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Pretty tasty, black cherry and cassis fruit, cocoa, coffee, pencil lead, perhaps a hint of herbal character but to me this is still a young and primary wine. Not over the top in terms of ABV which is 14.7% or in ripe fruit character. The structure is fairly dominant with big tannins that have some mouth drying character that lessened on day two, some nice acidity on the finish. Balance is very good, I wasn't quite expecting that from a 2000 Cabernet from this region. A bit shut down on day 1 but really improved big time on day 2. Very nice. N 8 P 8+ S 8+ B 8+ C 8 = 91+/100
